PLAN: We will evaluate the adequacy of the therapy for her urinary tract infection with the urinalysis and culture. I recommended mammogram and screening, hemoccult x 3, DEXA scan and screening, and she is fasting today. We will screen with chem-12, lipid profile, and CBC because of her advancing age and notify of those results, as soon as they are available. Continue same meds. Recheck annually unless she has problems sooner.
